The 1st day of May was supposed to be my comeback. I haven't gone for a run since my half marathon, that was two weeks ago. I was letting my body get over this flu completely. You must always listen to your body and mines was already itching for a morning run.
Instead I spent the day at the ER with a very sick muchkin, it wasn't pretty. I was worried sick! 12 hours of non-stop vomiting and diarrhea, makes for one very worried momma and one very sick looking munchkin.
It was a long wait at the ER in which munchkin thought he would die of thirst, he wasn't allowed to drink any liquid since his stomach was rejecting everything. Once we finally got a room, he was given medicine for the vomiting and an IV for the dehydration. He was released from the hospital at midnight, and sent home with anti nausea medicine and antibiotics.
Today he is still feeling tired, still with nausea and diarrhea, which means my munchkin will be out of commission for a few more days.
I didn't get my morning run on and it looks like I won't be going back to run until next week, three weeks of no running is making me go cookoo!
But right now all this momma wants is to see her munchkin smiling and up and running again!
A mom is never at peace while her child is sick, yesterday all that made it's way into my stomach was a sugar free jello. I couldn't bare to eat, while watching my munchkin so sick.
